Desmond Thomas was born this morning after 2 hours of labour. I was debating on whether or not to have a home birth, but by the time the midwife arrived, I was 8cms and he was born 40 minutes later. It was an intense yucky back labour, but I'm glad it was quick and I was able to stay at home and deliver him quickly and well supported by my midwives and doula to listen to my body, which said "End this now!!!!" and so I had three monster pushes and out he was. He's nursing like a champ and is a really calm fella, big brothers are thrilled to have a new one and sang him happy birthday when grandparents brought them over.
I'm soooooo glad he's on the outside, I'm sore, but I really like my non-pregnant status and being able to hug this cutie-pie.
